The veteran astronaut dressed up in a costume and floated inside the International Space Station.

Yes, you can celebrate Halloween anywhere even in the microgravity conditions in space.

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly is on a year-long mission in space where he is conducting different sorts of experiments and collecting information which will pave way from further missions in space. Despite all that, he did not forget to celebrate Halloween night and to dress up in fancy costume just the way other people were wearing about 250 miles down on Earth.

Scott Kelly tweeted a special message from space.

#HappyHalloween from @space_station! Have a great weekend, and be safe down there. #YearInSpace

Alongside the sweet message, there is spooky video where Kelly is wearing a Jason Voorhees kind of a mask and is floating around the International Space Station. He creepily came close to the camera, creating a scene fitting for a horror flick.

Veteran astronaut Scott Kelly, who is currently serving as commander of the International Space Station's 45 crew members, has spent seven month in space station and has broken several records in his depressingly long stay.

On October 16, he broke the record for most time spent in space by an American with 383 days, surpassing Michael Fincke’s record set in 2011. Few days ago, Kelly achieved another milestone when he logged 216 consecutive days aboard, setting the record for a single longest flight by a U.S. astronaut. He beat Michael Lopez-Algeria’s record of 215 days which he held in 2007.

Kelly’s one year long mission is nearing to its end and he is scheduled to land on earth on March 2 next year after completing 342-day mission in space.
